Call the Midwife by Jennifer Worth, 2007
A much more in depth, detailed description of some of my favorite episodes from the show! I very much enjoyed the personal reflection back on each case by the author and have felt like I’ve learned so much about the time, location, and incredible history portrayed. Looking forward to the next books!
Dear John by Nicholas Sparks, 2006
This was a surprisingly emotionally involved book. Moot romances are predictable and sappy. Not this one! I honestly did not know what would happen from page to page. It went from an “easy read” to a book I couldn’t wait to get back to!
One Light Still Shines by Cindy Lambert, 2013
This book was recommended to me by a stranger at my son’s football game- I’m so glad I listened to her! The book was encouraging and uplifting. I’m not sure if it’s just because I’m used to reading fiction, or because the story is so surreal, but it was hard sometimes to remember that it was real! Mrs. Monville is a beautiful example of a light in a dark world.
America’s Cheapest Family by Steve and Annette Economides, 2007
This was an interesting book about saving money and reducing expenses. It gave me a lot of ideas to work on throughout the summer.
The Tale of Top Hill Farm by Susan Wittig, 2004
At first I was overwhelmed by all the names and British language. Once I caught on, I found the book charming and delightful. It definitely expanded my mind and left me wanting to read the next book.
George Washington, Spymaster: How the Americans Outspied the British and Won the War by Thomas B. Allen, 2007
This was an awesome book that opened my eyes to all the espionage and operations that not only took place during the Revolutionary War but led to the Patriots’ ultimate victory over Great Britain.
The Mortal Instruments: City of Heavenly Fire by Cassandra Clare
I read this book in twenty-four hours. I couldn’t put it down! I laughed, I cried, I was biting my nails! it was awesome.
